Deep into a solo voyage across the Indian Ocean, Our Man (Redford) finds himself battling for survival against the elements, having unwittingly sailed into the path of a violent storm. Relying heavily on his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the sailor barely survives as his boat is destroyed and his navigation equipment and radio disabled. Stranded alone on the high seas, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of attracting the attention of a passing vessel, using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress. With the sun blaring, sharks circling and supplies dwindling, the sailor soon finds himself confronted by his own mortality.
